The East South East and London is a huge geographic area covering from the Norfolk coast to the Isle of Wight, with Greater London at its centre. Whilst London contains the majority of our civil servants, there is a distribution across the whole of the region, with significant pockets of staff in places such as Southampton/Portsmouth, Dover, Hastings, Reading, Milton Keynes, Cambridge, Peterborough, Norwich, Ipswich and Southend.

Our CS Local team delivers cross departmental induction, leadership academies and learning/networking events. The blog page below will show you the latest events open for booking, alongside other reports and stories which we think will be of value to you.

We also run cross departmental networks for those who work in, or are passionate about, continuous improvement; engagement and wellbeing; environmental issues; social mobility, diversity and inclusion and citizen outreach. If you wish to join one of the networks, please email the team mailbox.

The East South East and London CS Local Team is led by Ian Barton and can be contacted on their team mailbox -
